There have been violent demonstrations against Pakistan’s Imran government once again in Gilgit-Baltistan of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK). The protesters allege that the Imran government rigged the recently concluded assembly elections.

The protesters burnt tires and blocked roads to show their anger and frustration. In fact, in the recent elections, Imran’s party ‘Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’ (PTI) won most of the 23 assembly seats in Gilgit-Baltistan and is headed to form the government.

Protesters said – Justice will not be available till then
At the same time, the opposition termed the elections rigged and accused the government of misusing power. Significantly, India had expressed its objection to Pakistan for holding elections in Gilgit-Baltistan. The Indian Ministry of External Affairs issued a statement describing Gilgit-Baltistan as its share, terming the elections conducted by the Imran government in the region illegal.

Hundreds of people participated in the protests following protests by opposition parties in Pakistan. The protesters say they will not withdraw until justice is served to them. Elections in these areas are always important for Pakistan, which is illegally occupying parts of India, although this time it is desperate.

China wants political control, so elections were held
Indeed, a special friend of Pakistan, China, wants complete political control in this area so that it can complete its strategic and ambitious China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) without any hindrance. This is the reason why, bowing to the pressure of China, Imran Khan gave the status of provincial state to Gilgit-Baltistan and announced to hold elections here.

It was reported that both the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz have made allegations of rigging in the recent Gilgit-Baltistan elections. However, the Pakistan-occupied region is yet to be declared the winner.

PTI emerging to be the largest party
The complete but unofficial results of the election of all 23 constituencies on Sunday indicated that the PTI is emerging as the single largest party with 10 seats. After this, seven independents are seen winning. At the same time, Dawn newspaper reported that PPP has won three seats. The PML-N is winning two seats and Majlis Wahdatul Muslimeen, contesting in an alliance with PTI.
